Award-winning Oversteps House is a spacious and luxurious holiday home sleeping up to sixteen people, boasting incredible views and in an idyllic location overlooking South Sands beach in Salcombe.
Originally constructed in 1901, this imposing holiday property has been extensively re-furbished to the very highest of standards, and is now cleverly designed as a spacious and luxurious eight-bedroomed house, with seven bathrooms and stylishly presented living, dining and relaxation areas.
The three-storey accommodation offers a superb base for larger group holidays or perhaps up to 6-7 couples, in a beautiful setting with direct access to the beach from the grounds, and a short boat trip (or scenic 25-30 minute walk) from Salcombe's picturesque sailing harbour.
Guests can relax on the balcony off the first floor living area – running the length of the property, it offers stunning sea views.
Other highlights include two utility areas, two master bedroom ‘suites’, two exceptionally well-equipped kitchens with Neff appliances, ample decking for al fresco dining, and a delightful beach house ‘Hobbit House’, on the private path to the beach.
With toilet, fridge, day bed and outdoor furniture, this is the perfect spot to watch the world go by.
Parking for 6 cars, the whole family can enjoy a holiday in this beautiful holiday home.

About the location

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck’s where you can wander through the subtropical gardens. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing, kayaking or a more leisurely boat trip? Whilst staying in Salcombe you must take advantage of the locally sourced seafood which is served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. The southern tip of Devon provides some spectacular scenery and picturesque vistas with a number of sandy beaches, lovely villages with thatched cottages and some fantastic opportunities for walking, including the South West Coast path.
